    Hello,
    I live in Hereford UK at the moment and im going to Manchester for University this September and i reeeeeeally want to carry on using a darkroom. I currently have a very functional one in my cellar that i am LOVING and i wanna keep up the momentum in September.

    Does anyone know if there is a darkroom in Manchester that i can use??

    Redeye, the photographic network for the NW note that Start in Salford have a well equipped darkroom for hire. A trip to their website shows the following:

    Not sure if they also do hourly rates, but worth enquiring about.

    I started photography in the Students Union Photographic Society darkroom - its a great place to start.

    However, since you already have your own darkroom, you may be a little disappointed by the Photo Socs set-up

    No where is ever quite as nice as your own place - you know where everything is and its all your own mess.

    I am not trying to put you off - just make you aware that it "there is no place like home"

    Not sure what the facilities are but try these:

    http://www.slaughterhousestudios.co....ncillary-rooms

    Start in Salford have about 8 enlargers - LPL 6700's - it's a good space.

    If you're doing a BA at Man Met they have a well equipped darkroom.

    Hope this helps.

    regards,
